Hi

I want to tell you about a problem with the "history" tab.
The fact is that tab History does not show anything.
I believe that tab shows a list of the files that I have heard, but It is empty.
I can use musicbee with more than 100 mp3 and the tab history does not show anything

Thanks

Are the files that you're playing in your MusicBee library?

Did you manage to find a solution or explanation for this? I've just discovered the same issue (I don't think I've ever used the History tab before, but nevertheless I'd expect it to be populated).

Your History tab is populated from a file named \%AppData%\ActivityLog.dat.  Does that file exist and is it in a place that MB can read/write?

Thanks - I found that file and deleted it (after backing it up) to see if MB would recreate it, and that seems to have worked - the History tab is now populating as it should. I guess the file must have got corrupted somehow.
